Jayanandini was attracted to the practicals and excursions that are part of RMIT's Bachelor of Science (Applied Sciences).
Bachelor of Science
The highlight of my studies has been learning so much about the environment along with the experiences I have received with workplace learning opportunities.
I’m broadly interested in the environment and I was attracted to the science program at RMIT because I liked the course outline and knew it would extend my knowledge on plants and animals. I also liked the fact that RMIT offered adventurous practicals and excursions!
In the three years that I have been at RMIT, I’ve learned about proper laboratory skills and safety hazards; how to identify a disease affecting plants and obtain environment samples; increased my ability to identify a plants and animals; and become aware of threats to the environment caused by humans.
This degree has really prepared me for working life because we are handling actual specimens and getting real insights into what it’s like to work on a project or for an organisation. I’ve also been able to increase my leadership and presentation skills by participating in the LEAD program at RMIT where I attended training for Student-Staff Consultative Committee.
If you have an interest in plants and animals this program will definitely be something to consider, and the range of courses that you can choose from also help you to tailor your degree to specialist areas.
